Carsen is staying in her Brooklyn apartment and not coming home. I send her tips and advice which she mostly ignores.
She did post this on Facebook, though. This is one of my better tips, if I do say so myself.
I pray she heeded my advice to take out cash and get food, water, and ice for her insulin for when the power goes out. I have to leave her in God’s hands. Please God, take care of that headstrong child who is EXACTLY like me. I tell my mother how exacerbating she is and she laughs and reminds me that the apple does not fall far from the tree.
Sunday at noon. Still no birds. I woke up an hour after high tide this morning, and this was where the tide was hitting the wall of the canal. This is about two feet above normal. We have three high tides to go before the crest of the storm. God help us.
I think we are ready. We went to the beach yesterday and it looked like this. We are going later if we can finish moving stuff up off the ground in the garage. We need to fill some sandbags. I will post pictures of the 10-foot waves we are hearing about.
I have also told everyone that I will post updates here as I can if we have power....
